Do you see weakness?
Did you ever doubt me?
Did you ever think you could break me?

So doubt me if you want.
Try to break me if you desire
But know this if you should choose to waste your time and energy doing so when all is said and done I will still be here standing proud and tall.
Look into my eyes and you’ll see that.
